    I suggest you start here <http://www.killfile.org/~tskirvin/nana/> and
    here <http://www.killfile.org/~tskirvin/faqs/cancel.html> - and
    lurk in the active groups to see what actually goes on there. (What
    prompted someone to create a newsgroup is not necessarily what the group
    ends up being used for).

    Google Groups can tell you how 'active' a group is and who posts there,
    etc. eg

  4. No spammers defending their right to spam, any more, or are they
    included in one or both of "kooks" and "trolls"?

  5. I recently did, in fact. But I didn't stay long enough to get a good
    feel for the distribution of the various subsets.
